My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space
The Amazing Adventures of an Ordinary Woman - The Amazing Adventures of an Ordinary Woman
Lisa Scottoline & Francesca Serritella
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Critics and readers loved Lisa Scottoline's first collection of true-life stories, which only encouraged her—now she's back with these all-new, exciting adventures. She's farther down the road now, and the scenery has changed—ex-husbands Thing One and Thing Two are in her rear-view mirror, daughter Francesca has moved into an apartment, and Lisa's finding the silver lining in her empty nest, which has lots more room for her shoes. And some things have stayed the same—Mother Mary is still the feistiest octogenarian on the planet, who won't part with her recipe for tomato sauce or her thirty-year old bra.
In this book Lisa and Francesca spill all their family secrets—which sound a lot like yours, if you understand that three generations of women is the formula for spontaneous combustion.
Inspired by her weekly column entitled, "Chick Wit" for The Philadelphia Inquirer, this is a book you'll have to put down—just to stop laughing.

Another fabulous read
Another wonderful book about what it means to be a woman and to be part of a family. I love Lisa's books because she makes me feel normal! She shares the crazy and the funny parts of being a woman and the tender sweet parts, too. Daughter Francesca writes several entries as well! Also, men, don't be afraid to read this book. I think you could probably relate :)
